In his position with ASRT, Loren produced designs for advertisements, brochures, marketing materials, and our website. He also served as a photographer and directed photography shoots, including cover photography for our member magazine, ASRT Scanner. Loren’s primary responsibility was the creative direction and production of ASRT Scanner, which is published six times a year. Under his direction, the magazine received several FOLIO awards for design.”

I worked with Loren when he was chief designer of the ASRT Scanner magazine. We often brainstormed design concepts for feature articles and I always found Loren's ideas to be first rate. He was able to work within the design constraints of an association publication while consistently bringing flair and creativity to each page. His multiple design awards from Folio prove the point.”

Loren has an eye for design and taking a fairly foreign concept and working with it to make it visually appealing to the reader. He also does an excellent job at taking the art direction lead during photo shoots, thinking all the while about how each individual photograph can best be showcased in his designs. Loren is personable, efficient and organized.”

Loren was fantastic to work with, as he had very clear ideas for image looks and artistic direction, and he was a very good communicator. This made our shooting time super productive, as we were both on the same page with what we were trying to accomplish. In addition to that, he was just a pleasure to work with during all stages of the projects.”
